Silver Settings

Use these silver accents for a sparkling salute to the coming year.

After the party, your guests can take these napkin holders home to use as oversize paper clips.

What You Need:

Heigh-ho, silver: Swirl Napkin Clips and Picture Frame Favors.
  • 9-gauge aluminum wire (available at hardware stores)
  • Wire cutters
  • Needle-nose pliers

Instructions:

1. Cut an 18-inch length of wire for each clip, using wire cutters.

2. Bend the wire in half to form a hairpin shape.

3. Curl ends. Use needle-nose pliers to curl each end into a spiral.

4. Slide each clip over a napkin for your party.

These party favors double as place settings. Make them all the same, or make a unique creation for each guest.

What You Need:

It's a place setting and a party favor.
  • Small picture frames in black or silver (1 for each guest)
  • Vintage buttons
  • Hot-glue gun and hot-glue sticks, or jewelry adhesive
  • Heavy white paper
  • Pen with silver ink
  • Scissors

Instructions:

1. Attach buttons to frames. Use hot glue or jewelry adhesive to attach the vintage buttons as desired to the frames. Decide the placement of all of the buttons before you begin to glue.

2. Cut white paper to fit the frames. Cut 1 piece for each frame.

3. Write a guest's name on each piece of paper. Slip the paper into the frame.

4. Place a frame at each place setting.

More Ideas:

  • Assemble all of the silver containers, vases, and bowls you own and fill them with bouquets of fresh flowers. The variations in the size and style of the containers will add interest to this centerpiece.
  • A black tablecloth will make your silver and dinnerware shine, but top the black fabric with a lacy crocheted cloth or shawl, or a sheer fabric runner, to keep the table from looking stark.
